I was trying to figure out what to cook this evening, and I found a fun recipe involving quinoa and black beans (two of my favorite foods).
What’s the odds that I’d actually have all the ingredients without going to the store?
Yes, God is good.
Complete proteins are a huge part of the repair process for the body. Today was a rest day for me, a chance for me to hydrate and get off my legs. It’s also a chance to cook up a massive meal since my night is free.
Here we go…
I sauted onions and garlic in coconut oil, afterwards I added quinoa and vegetable broth to the sauce pan and let it simmer. At this moment I added cumin and cayenne pepper. Quinoa cooked for fifteen minutes, afterwards I added frozen corn and let it simmer again for five minutes. Finally I added rinsed black beans and cilantro.
Huge, huge serving and very filling. It’s gluten free, vegetarian, and in this case was organic. Total prep and cook time took about an hour.
Total cost of this dish is in the $6-$8 range due to pending quinoa pricepricess.
